2 Genders 2 – The intersex reckoning.

 

Earlier today, Steven Crowder did a second segment on there only being 2 genders in his “Change My Mind” discussions. I found this session particularly interesting as he had a conversation with both a transgender person, (Male to Female identity,)  and an intersex person who says they were born with a Y chromosome and a vagina. (A very real type of intersex defect.) There were a number of things in the conversation that struck me.

  1. Both guests/conversationalists had very large chips on their shoulders, and made a lot of assumptions about people that disagreed with them. Including that we(conservatives, Christians, none LGBT… people) hated them, and were attacking them as being something less than human. That has never been a position I, or anyone I know has taken, but never the less that is all to commonly how we are portrayed and presumed to be. Our ‘friends’ in the media having no small amount of blame for that.
  2. They both argued for ‘their truth’ not ‘the truth,’ and criticized our ability to understand biology. Despite not being able to give a scientific or biological argument for their position. At one point the second guest sited chimerism as an intersex disorder. Which it isn’t. Chimerism is where there are twins in the womb, and one twin absorbs the other completely into itself. In layman’s terms, think extreme conjoined twins.
  3.  They  focused on feelings, and got defensive when their feelings were not being validated as true when they were not true. This is actually a major problem with the new school curriculum, but I’ll be doing a separate post on that. Probably a video. I have not done one in a while, and all my concerns with the curriculum can’t be articulated quite as well in written form.
  4. They both argued for gender being on a spectrum, but believed that the spectrum had two polar ends. Male and Female. Neither could specify by what criteria an additional gender is defined, how many there were, or even what another gender is.

I’ve consider doing my own “There are only 2 Genders” but do it “I’m intersex, and there are only 2 genders. Change My Mind.” Maybe Canada day… we will see. I took particular exception to the intersex person using their defect to ignore the facts in front of them, and presume to speak for all people with the ‘spectrum’ of intersex defects. There actually is a cluster, not a spectrum. A spectrum requires there to be no defined steps. Each intersex defect has a name, and each has different genetically identifiable characteristics. One might even call it biology and science.

There are only 2 Genders. Change my mind…

Earlier this week Steven Crowder did an honest “There are only 2 Genders. Change my mind” segment. This was the 3rd time he has done a video like that. About 2 weeks ago during the heat of the SCHS bathroom issue, I posed this same question to a Father who’s children attend SCHS. My conversation, went about the same…

Gender Unicorn, not a concept for children.

If you think the Guidelines to Best Practices were written with young children in mind, or for their emotional, intellectual, and physical development, think Again. The ‘Gender Unicorn’ is derived from hard left intersectional (feminist) social ‘theory,’ and is written as a ‘diversity’ course for TA’s. It cares not for what is best for your child’s development, and (intersectionality) seeks to destroy the family as a founding goal. Below is a video of the actions of the kinds of people who developed it, and lists it’s use as a required course for TA’s in Minnesota.

Teaching gender politics deprives children of a successful future.

Teaching a child that gender is fluid, is to push them to failure. It will set them up to try to accomplish the impossible, and lead them to failure, after failure, after failure. Hopelessness is what drives people to thoughts of suicide. Who would ever want to live in a natural world that doesn’t care how much they scream that they are a man living in a woman’s body. Might as well say gravity doesn’t exist, and that you don’t have to adhere to it. This is the reason suicide rates are so high among transgender, and gender none conforming. Not because of the lack of support from family and school. Not because of bullying. No, it is because they are living a lie, and are expending all their energy in a fruitless endeavor. Attempting to achieve happiness by doing what reminds them of why they are unhappy. Wouldn’t it be more prudent and lead them to more happiness to help them to come to terms with their real gender? Listen to any detransitioner, or formerly gender confused child who reached puberty. You can hear it in their explanations. The hopelessness is what hurts them the most. The lying to themselves. The lying by those closest to them. You can see the anger and hurt in their eyes for the doctors, politicians, bureaucrats, and even parents who did nothing but lie to them for years. No one who loves them would lie to them about who they are, and push them into a state of hopelessness. This has got to stop.
